hamid karzai appeared at a joint news conference. both leaders announced that u.s. troops will handover total control of security to the afghan forces sometime during the spring which represents a slight acceleration from the time table. but it was at the end of the news conference that perhaps the most important question was asked. after 11 years, almost half a trillion dollars spent and perhaps 20,000 afghan civilians and more than 3,200 u.s. troops dead, can the mission still be justified? >> at the end of this conflict we are going to be able to say that the sacrifices that were made by those men and women in uniform has brought about the goal that we sought. >> joining us now is michael o'hanlon, director of research and senior foreign policy fellow at the brookings institution and dana mill bink, a political columnist with "the washington post." dana, if i might begin with you, we all know of the fatigue with this conflict and the president's desire to bring the troops home. but given what we know of the relative immaturity of afghan forces alongside the continuing presence of the
